way, the good people of san antonio willing, to the united states congress! (cheers and applause) my family story isn't special. what's special is the america that makes our story possible. ours is a nation like no other, a place where great journeys can be made in a single generation no matter who you are or where you come from, the path is always forward. (cheers and applause) america didn't become the land of opportunity by accident. my grandmother's generation and generations before always saw beyond the horizons of their own lives and their own circumstances. they believed that opportunity created today would lead to prosperity tomorrow. that's the country they envisioned and that's the country they helped build. the roads and bridges they built, the schools and universities they created, the rights they fought for and won. these opened the doors to a decent job, a secure retirement, the chance for your children to do better than you did. and that's the middle class, the engine of our economic growth. with hard work, everybody ought to be able to get there. and with hard work, e

. the state has recorded nearly 900 cases. that's 45% of all west nile cases in the united states. aerial pesticide spraying last month in and around dallas dramatically reduced the mosquito population. in july, half of the mosquitoes tested positive for west nile, now it's just 5%. but doctors believe the number of reported cases will increase because weeks can pass before people infected with west nile develop serious symptoms. dr. beth bell of the centers for disease control and prevention expects the outbreak to last until october. >> oh, it takes a little time for people after they get sick to go to the doctor, to get the blood test. what we're counting are cases of illness which occurred several weeks ago. >> and that's not the total number of people who may be sick from west nile virus. the cdc says hundreds more people probably have become ill but just never went to a doctor. anna werner, cbs news, dallas. >>> quick break now on a thursday morning. when we come back, central american shakeup. a major earthquake rattles costa rica, sending people running. this is the morning news.

of the united states convention. here we got an ipad case in the refillable water bottle. >> tell us about the order of the convention's four years ago. >> there is no law that governs this but since about 1930 to the parties have had a handshake agreement that basically whatever party controls the white house gets to go second. the party that goes second can rebut claims made by the challenging party and can actually make things different on the fly. in 2008 john mccain's people took one look at what the dnc was doing with their greek columns and purposely scaled back the appearance of their convention both to distinguish themselves from the democrats and also in recognition of the declining economy. it always goes to the party that has the incumbent in the white house >> can you have a counter party after the second party? >> exactly >> let's talk about this, you were saying something about a possible same-sex marriage controversy. >> you might recall that the democratic party have elected to make same-sex marriage one of its platforms in its endorsement of same-sex marriage and back in
the president of the united states. he exudes it. he said saturday afternoons, michelle and the girls they go play tennis, i go into the value office, i pretend oil work and i switch on "homeland." and that's on saturday afternoon. so saturday afternoons don't call the president because he's watching "homeland." i think i've heard him say, he just is enjoying the characters in it because the thrill element of it must be quite close to the bone. >> little too close. the president with an american accent. >> wasn't very good obama impression. >> damian lewis, thank you. >> thank you. >> great work. >> and "homeland's" second season premiers tomorrow night on showtime. >> up next man's best friend is living large. forget the kennel, take a look at this posh pet hotel. you're watching cbs "this morning saturday". if you think occasional irregularity is no big deal, think twice. it may be a sign that your digestive system could be working better. listen to this. with occasional irregularity, things your body doesn't use could be lingering in your system, causing discomfort. but activia has been sh
after something like this has taken place. the united states is spending billions of dollars in aid in pakistan. pakistanis should be hearing about that pretty often, about all the good work that the united states does. when the pakistani receives something directly or indirectly that comes from american aid they should know about it and quite often they don't. so, yes, you want to do damage control. i understand the urge to do damage control but too little too late. >> then what for u.s. interests in the middle east >> get in the conversation. there are lessons to be learned. the main lesson is you can't allow extremists in any society ours as well as theirs to dictate the conversation. we keep saying where are the muslim moderates and why don't they speak up. some of the responsibility falls on us as well. we have to be part of the conversation and they have to hear from us all the time. >> here in new york a man is in critical condition after he was mauled by a tiger at the bronx zoo. it happened on friday after the man lead from a monorail and landed in the tiger's pen. jim axel
